Fashion Victim: Homotopy to George Will

Click for 1200x900. Photo: Lee Ewing

George Will's column this morning on the evils of denim was inspirational! Here's what I wore today as a tribute to the great man:

  • Green wool sweater vest, vintage, no tag, unknown era.
  • White cotton button-down shirt, Calvin Klein.
  • Red patterned silk clip-on (YES!) bow tie, no label, late 50s/early 60s. Haven't you heard? Bow ties are the new thing (not really).
  • Levi's 501 button-fly jeans, the most perfect article of clothing ever invented.
  • Red leather "bowling" shoes, Prada.
  • Nooka Zub Zot watch. EDIT: I really want to rave a little about Nooka. I believe their watches are some of the greatest American designs since the original iMac. I dare anybody to look at their site and not find something they want.

Eat your heart out, George. Also: what, you don't have handy seamless backdrops at your job?

I found the usage of the term 'homotopy" in the headline of this post to be completely disorientating. Please don't do it again.

I was gonna request this pic, but never got around to it & kinda hesitated to seem to be nudging you to do something if you might not want to...

But I'm glad to see it!

The original iMac? Huh? I can't even tell if you are joking.

Madduane said...

@J. Matt -- the original iMac was beautiful, imo.

That slim visage reminds me of Fred Astaire, you debonaire little equine, you.
